Covid Bluegrass

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear has reported more than 300 new coronavirus cases across Kentucky. He also said Friday that the state’s death toll from the pandemic has reached 200. Beshear says the daily upswing in cases comes as more Kentucky residents are being tested for the virus. The 322 additional cases announced Friday raised the statewide total to nearly 3,800 since the public health crisis began. Beshear also reported nine more virus-related deaths Friday. The increase in cases comes as Beshear is reaching out for input in formulating plans to gradually reopen the state’s economy.
